"Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. I encourage everyone to immerse themselves in this phenomenal book." --Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

In her first two books, Loving What Is and I Need Your Love--Is That True? Byron Katie showed how suffering can be ended by questioning the stressful thoughts that create it. Now, in A Thousand Names for Joy , she encourages us to discover the freedom that lives on the other side of inquiry.

Stephen Mitchell--the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching--selected provocative excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. With her stories of total ease in all circumstances, Katie does more than describe the awakened mind; she lets you see it, feel it, in action.

If you are fond of Zen koans like the sound of one hand clapping, this may make sense to you. If you're not, it's just page after page of unintelligible gibberish.

jeez....what to say. I became enraged listening to this CD. "Do you need money right in this instance? Really? Right in this very moment." For pete's sake, when someone needs money they need it. It doesn't matter if it's right in this very second or in the next second. When the bank is about to foreclose on your house you need money every second of your life. This minute and the next and the next.
